The interlibrary loan service offers patrons the opportunity to request materials from other libraries.
There are three ways to order items through interlibrary loan:
Materials retrieved from another library usually have a loan period of five weeks. Items may not be renewed.
It can take as little as one day to as much as 4 weeks or longer to obtain some materials, depending on the availability or type of material requested. Patrons will be notified by phone or email when the requested item arrives.
Items that may be borrowed from other libraries include fiction and non-fiction books and audio books. All materials must be more than one year from the date of publication.
Items that cannot be borrowed from other libraries include books that have been published within the last year, current bestsellers, movies, compact discs, reference materials, entire issues of magazines and periodicals, textbooks, and school course material. The library can borrow only what other institutions are willing to lend.
